In 2020, the global economy has been disrupted by the worst pandemic in a century. While economic activity is recovering, there remain significant downside risks. Moreover, while governments have reacted with extraordinary measures to protect people and businesses during the crisis, it remains unclear how much further they can go and what the consequences might be. Meanwhile, the outcome of the US presidential election will surely have a significant impact on policies related to the virus, trade, cross-border investment, taxation, spending, migration, healthcare, and climate change – to name a few. Finally, even when the pandemic is eventually over, it is likely that there will be permanent changes in the structure of the US and global economies.
To examine these issues and more, we are pleased to welcome Dr. Ira Kalish, Chief Global Economist of Deloitte. Dr. Kalish is a specialist in global economic issues as well as the effects of economic, demographic, and social trends on the global business environment.
